>> george, thank you. joining us is a retired airline pilot. capt. dietz was also the president of the air line pilots association. capt. deeds, thank you. we have a number of questions for you. the construction that is ongoing at sfo. and also, the glide slope was down. and possibly, the visual approach indicators might have also been turned off. even if both of those are true, are there still systems that should have supported these aircraft? >> yes. the pilots' own vision. we use the automatic
9:19am
system to get boss. even if all of the visual aids were in place, there still should have been the pilot that could have landed the plane. >> do you think that the construction played a role? >> that should have actually given them more runway, not less. they were not on the runway at all
9:20am
>> i am sure that you have seen the animation. however, that is also a, the we have heard, that he was flying into low, and flying into slow. however, from this website. we have learned that when the aircraft was 1005 the hundred feet from the truck threshold it was at 109 knots speeds from 1500 feet from the threshold. >> he was definitely way too low. and generally, there is 130-140 knots. >> given your experience and
9:21am
history of one of the questions that stays in my mind is how long is this wreckage going to sestay on the runway and what impact will have this on s f o. are they going to open the runways with their wreckage still sitting there? >> i do not believe so. they want to make sure that the landing clearance will have a safe distance. they will have to wait until the debris is cleared. when you get and that position, of flying into low, and flying into slow, it is a recipe for disaster. the house this
9:22am
should make the airline aware. i did hear >> we have played the tapes a lot and i have not been able to decipher that the pilot called for a call round. however, what i did hear from one of the survivors of the crash is that he heard the engines go to full throttle just before
9:23am
impact. his report sounded like that we were taking off and i could feel the airplane lurching forward. it sounded like the pilot tried to apply power. would he have done that even if you wanted to extend his glidepath. if you are too low and too slow, remember that they should have done something about it. you know this as a pilot what is the psychological impact for pilots and passengers to be flying on a runway. while the wreckage is still there
9:24am
is that something that they would allow to happen? >> i think that they're going to have to. i do not think that it is going to burden the pilots but i think certainly it will impact the passengers. >> let me ask you one more time. what would you guess and i know that it is only a guess. howl long will these be delayed? >> that one, is probably best answered by the airport authorities. we will take a quick break and be back with our special coverage. .

9:49am
he is saying that there was no mechanical error. >> caller: >> i think it is very important and probably correct. it leads me to believe that the airline will be irresponsible. and it clearly indicates that they are responsible. and it makes the airline absolutely responsible for the damage. >> the ripple effect of course is a lot of displacement of four other passengers. is the liability going to extend coverage for hotel rooms, and the cost of travel changes? for other airlines. >> no. the liability is only

9:53am
the autopilot was not in full operation mode the plane was getting away from them, in some factor. >> we have heard some retired commercial flights that while that is true, that clearly the vision of the pilot is your last resort. you can hear the pilot on the adjacent runway. getting clearance from the tower when he is on the final approach. and you can hear him acknowledge that he has a visual on the landing. does that mean that from that point that now the house of runway in his vision? >> he is flying in visually
9:54am
